The Internal Revenue Service is reminding all taxpayers who have yet to file their 2019 federal tax return to:
- file electronically;
- choose direct deposit for their refund;
- or pay any tax owed electronically.
Electronic options will support social distancing and speed the processing of tax returns, refunds and payments.
Should you need more time to prepare your federal tax return, please note the following:
- An extension of time to file a return does not grant any extension of time to pay taxes.
- Taxpayers should estimate and pay any owed taxes by the July 15 deadline to help avoid possible penalties.
- Taxpayers must file their extension request no later than the July 15 postponed due date of their return.
In addition to tax payments that may be due, quarterly estimates will also be due soon. If you need assistance with any of these items, now is the time to reach out to your accountant.
As always, if you have questions about this or other topics, please know we are available to speak by phone at 215-675-8364 or you may reach us via email at email@example.com.
